Across Army, there is a wide range of trades, specialties and career pathways, and for many it can be a long time between opportunities to practice and enhance our tactical skills. For those not actively involved in combat roles, often the only opportunity to intensively practice all-corps tactical skills are career courses, and it can often be around five years between those courses. Understandably, there is a lot of skill fade that can occur if you don’t practice these skills or create chances to refresh your knowledge.
This video, produced by ALPC, provides an explanation of ‘Decision & Execution’ (D&E) which is the final step in the five step Military Appreciation Process (MAP). In addition, it discusses the four activities associated with D&E:
- Compare Courses of Action (COAs)
- Select the COA
- Develop and issue the plan
- Execute the plan
Watch the video to refresh your knowledge on D&E, and take a look at our other videos in this series to look at each of the steps in more detail.
